Let's talk about Grace. Grace comes from the Latin word 'favor' meaning a gift freely given. Grace in Greek means benevolence. The Grace of Christ is the supernatural life and blessings that God bestowed and continues to bestow on mankind in view of the merits of Christ's Redemption. In addition, this grace of God, leads man to the divine and also heals the wounds caused by sin.
The essence of Grace is its gratuity. (Modern Catholic Dictionary, J.A. Hardon,S.J.)
The Love of God is made known through the Incarnation which is celebrated at Christmas.
Luke 2:14 states, "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests."
To all have a MERRY AND BLESSED CHRISTMAS!
